"The D'Amelio Show" This unscripted series follows up the smashing success of its first season with more drama under the glare of the internet spotlight in Season 2, as the D'Amelios' meteoric rise creates once-in- a-lifetime opportunities in business and personal relationships — but they could come at the cost of what makes them a tight-knit family. (ORIGINAL) "Movie: Catherine Called Birdy" "Girls" creator Lena Dunham co-wrote and directed this adventure flick set in 1290 England that follows Lady Catherine (Bella Ramsey, "Game of Thrones") aka "Birdy," as she thwarts repeated attempts by her father, the destitute Lord Rollo (Andrew Scott, "His Dark Materials") to marry her off for money. Lesley Sharp, Sophie Okonedo and Joe Alwyn also star. (ORIGINAL) "Conversations With a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes" The third installment of director Joe Berlinger's "Conversations With a Killer" series focuses on how Jeffrey Dahmer, responsible for 17 murders in Wisconsin and Ohio from 1978 to 1991, managed to avoid suspicion and detection from police as he stalked Milwaukee's gay scene for victims, many of whom were people of color. (ORIGINAL) "Thor: Love and Thunder" (Available now) Taika Waititi co-wrote and directed this 2022 actioner that finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) seeking the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) when the gods are threatened with extinction at the hands of Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale). The STREAM Scene Where all the top choices can be found in one place! 10 • Terre Haute Tribune-Star • October 2 - 8, 2022 BEST BETTE DAVIS MOVIES "Of Human Bondage" (1934) Davis plays cruel waitress Mildred, who coldly toys with an earnest admirer's (Leslie Howard) emotions, in this adaptation of the W. Somerset Maugham classic. "Dangerous" (1935) Davis earned her first Academy Award as an actress whose drinking problem leads to trouble for her and others. "The Petrified Forest" (1936) Working again with Leslie Howard, with Humphrey Bogart added, Davis stars in the Robert E. Sherwood play about crossed paths at a diner. "Jezebel" (1938) Sort of a pre-"Gone With the Wind," this Davis staple saw her score her second Oscar as a willful Southern belle trying to win back her ex-fiance (Henry Fonda). "Dark Victory" (1939) In one of Davis' most popular movies, she stars as a socialite who develops a brain tumor, then falls in love with the doctor (George Brent) who operates on her. "The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex" (1939) Davis and Errol Flynn have the title roles in the tempestuous royal love story. "The Letter" (1940) Another W. Somerset Maugham work was the source of Davis' turn as a murder suspect whose claim of self- defense might unravel because of a certain letter. "The Little Foxes" (1941) Lillian Hellman's play centers on a wealthy Southern family – with Davis playing one member – beset by problems while also causing them for others. "Now, Voyager" (1942) A spinster, portrayed by Davis, undergoes a radical transformation after spending time in a sanitarium. Turner Classic Movies shows the film Saturday, Oct. 8. "The Corn Is Green" (1945) A schoolteacher (Davis) becomes the patron of a promising student (John Dall) in the screen version of Emlyn Williams' play. "A Stolen Life" (1946) Davis plays twin sisters, one of whom "steals" the other's identity – and husband (Glenn Ford) – after a drowning. "All About Eve" (1950) "It's going to be a bumpy night," indeed. The classic backstage drama stars Davis as a veteran stage star targeted by an ambitious admirer (Anne Baxter). "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" (1962) Davis' later career got a big jolt from this legendary chiller, pairing her with Joan Crawford as former-actress siblings engaged in psychological terror. "Hush ... Hush, Sweet Charlotte" (1964) The same team behind "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" furnished Davis with another tale of family strife turned horrifying. "The Nanny" (1965) Davis is terrifically chilling as said minder of children, who matches wits with a savvy and suspicious youngster (William Dix). "Dangerous" BY JAY BOBBIN
